Advent Twilight Retreat

Advent Twilight Retreat

Date: Monday, December 4

Time: 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Twilight Retreat for this season of Advent will explore a statement by Henri Nouwen, "Peacemaking begins and ends with Jesus. Jesus embodies peace, makes peace, shares peace and blesses peacemakers." During this evening of silence, multi-media reflection and sharing, the Medicine Wheel will be used to help us move into a deeper understanding of the "Prince of Peace".
